    You could probably drop it and totally mess up the ROTJ and it would still be cooler than ESB. lol

    Can't wait to see my Stormrider Blaster all done up. Wish I had the patience to paint more than my Warhammer miniatures once a year. haha

    Darrell, did you find the mounts etc to be pretty straightforward?

    You and I are the only ones to finish a kit so far, and before I ship out the other 20 ive made, id like to know it all makes sense and theres no glaring problems.

    very simple and straightforward...the only thing that needed work were the shrouds on the top of the barrel mounts....you have to measure the width of the scope rings, and then cut the shroud down with a dremmel to get the rings to hold on... other than that, very easy...make sure to line everything up when mounting the shrouds, so the scope will line up straight...

    light sanding on everything else, like the stock greebs...MAYBE a hole or two to fill on the barrel mounts...
